Kirkland, Washington (October 14, 2013) – Renowned Kirkland, WA dentist Dr. Thomas Seal is offering help with sleep apnea. Having been involved in studies regarding the condition, he has amassed relevant knowledge and information on proper treatment.
People with sleep apnea experience pauses in breathing or shallow breaths as they sleep. The pauses usually last a few seconds, but these can extend to minutes and may even occur for more than an hour. This chronic condition causes the patient to sleep poorly, making him feel tired and overly sleepy during the day. Since this happens when they sleep, most people are not aware that they have it.
The common indicator of the condition is snoring, which is why the first people to notice the symptoms are often family members or a bed partner. Dr. Seal says that the probability for people who are snoring to have sleep apnea is greater. Individuals who are experiencing poor sleep may visit Dr. Seal so they can be checked.
Dr. Seal often gets referrals regarding sleep apnea. In addition to his involvement with studies, he also has extensive experience in dealing with the sleeping disorder. He has sleep ap machines available that can be modified based on the patient's needs. Such machines help open up the airways so people do not have the breathing problem while sleeping.
Like most Kirkland dentists, Dr. Seal offers orthodontic services which helps with the proper alignment of teeth, and family dentistry so patients of any ages can come and visit him. To learn more about his services, visit www.DrTomSeal.com today.
